gobbledegook on dvd ram disk under Fedora

I have a DVD ram disk containing data written using Windows XP. When I open a Nautilus window onto this disk from within Debian Etch or Ubuntu 6.10, the contents look normal with the usual file and folder icons and the file names are the usual readable (english). However if I open the same disk from within Fedora Core 6, the icons are mostly missing or strange and the english language file names replaced with graphic looking squiggles and odd shapes.

It would appear to be an issue with character sets. Can anyone elighten me as to what might be happening?

Many thanks.
